Lexmark International Inc. has introduced a line of ink-jet printers with price tags of less than $100.
The $49 Z600 Series Color Jetprinters can produce up to 4,800- by 1,200-dot-per-inch prints at up to 14 pages per minute in black and 8 ppm in color.
The Lexington, Ky., company rolled out its new ink-jets last week at the Comdex trade show in Las Vegas.
Although the Z600 ink-jets don't print six-color pictures, the new Z700 Series Color Jetprinters can. The $79 Z700 ink-jets also come with Lexmark's Photo Center Software, which lets the user edit photos to eliminate red eye, as well as crop and rotate images, and add text.
The Z700 Jetprinters produce pages at up to 17 ppm in black and 4- by 6-inch color photos in normal mode in about 60 seconds per photo.
For high-end users, Lexmark also has released the P700. It's nearly identical to the Z700 except it comes with an on-board camera card reader to simplify digital image printing. The $99 P700 series ships with both a color and photo cartridge, which gives the user the ability to produce six-color prints right out of the box.
